|DREAM as if you live forever, LIVE as if you'll die today..... Let the memory of Ulrich be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of my beloved husband, Ulrich Baur who was born on May 24, 1957 and passed away much too soon on November 25, 2010. I miss him every day and will remember him forever.
ich finde es toll, wie Du Dich nach den Schicksalsschlägen wieder aufgerappelt hast und wünsche Dir weiterhin alles Gute in Utah bei Deinen Unternehmungen innerhalb und außerhalb der Universität;
wie schon gesagt, Ulrich ist sicher stolz auf Dich und schaut Dir zu
Bernhard und Kerstin"
auch nach drei Jahren wird es immer noch schrecklich weh tun.
Aber Du hast Dein Leben in die Hand genommen und auch ich bin sicher, dass Ulrich stolz auf Dich sein würde.
Dein Ulrich wäre sicher sehr stolz auf Dich und darauf, wie Du die letzten Jahre gemeistert hast. Ich denke heute fest an Dich. Big Hugs!"
"Hello, only few minutes ago I learned that Uli is no more....
I was a postdoc at the MPI in Munich in 84-86 where Uli was a student and I have fond memories of him. He was always very cheerfull and active...."
Schön, dass Du diese Seite und die Erinnerung an Ulrich erhältst. In Gedanken bin ich bei Dir! Liebe Grüße and a big hug."
"Ulrich was a good man, and an exceptional scientist. He is greatly missed by our high energy physics community.
S. Nandi, Oklahoma State University"
"I only knew Ulrich for a very short time, but could tell he was an exceptional man. My heart goes out to Yvonne"
"Uli was the best, professionally and personally. I'm so glad that his memory is being supported in this way."
haben gestern an Dich und Uli gedacht, hoffen, daß es Dir gut geht mit Deinen Plänen
Bernhard und Kerstin"
"Remembering you Uli. We all miss you."
"Zwei Jahre ist es jetzt her, das ist kaum zu glauben. Wir sind in Gedanken bei Dir Yvonne.
Felizitas & Peter"
2 Jahre... unfassbar! Ich denke heute ganz fest an Dich! Big Hug Simone"
"I was reminded today that it has been 2 yrs since Uli passed away. Unbelievable! During these 2 yrs, it has become very clear that there are important EW corrections to calculate for the LHC and nobody has done them. The LHC-TI program is very strong and has become an important force in our field. Uli made his mark, but is missed. -JoAnne"
"Ulrich ist unvergessen!
Rolf R. Safferthal"
"When I walk down the hall, I still expect to see him in his office. I recall his humor and smile. Wishing you all the best. Mike and Kim"
nicht nur heute denke ich an Dich, aber heute ganz besonders. Ich bin sicher, dass Dir Dein geliebtes Utah helfen wird, diesen schweren Tag zu meistern und Ulrich wird Dich wie immer dabei begleiten. Big Hug Simone"
"Ulrich's memory is still alive and we are thinking good thoughts about him on the anniversary of his birth.
best wishes, Robin Erbacher and John Conway"
wir haben in den letzten Tagen, speziell in Moab oft an Dich und Uli gedacht
Dir alles Gute
Bernhard und Kerstin"
"This is a tough time for you Yvonne.. I know... Please keep your head and faith up
kam gestern gerade aus dem Krankenhaus, nichts schlimmes, doch habe natürlich an Dich und Uli gedacht,
hatte Dir vorletzte Woche schon geschrieben und hoffe, daß Du weiter auf Deinem Weg erfolgreich gehst
alles Gute Bernhard"
ich denk an dich, drück dich ganz fest und wünsche dir weiterhin viel Mut und Kraft."
On this day i think of you. I wish you strength and mostly positiv memories.
"The greatest memorial a person/human can gets, is in the hearts of other people/humans." by *Albert Schweitzer*"
"Liebe Yvonne, wir wünschen Dir für den heutigen Tag Kraft und nur schöne Erinnerungen an eure gemeinsame Zeit. Ulrich wird bei Dir sein und viele liebe Gedanken von netten Menschen auch.Lass Dich fest drücken. Felizitas & Peter"
ich wünsche Dir heute ganz besonders viel Kraft und hoffe sehr, dass die schönen Erinnerungen überwiegen werden! Big Hug! Simone"
"Dear Yvonne and Bauer Family,
While we never met, I have known Uli since his work at Madison Wisconin, where I learned from him. He was a gentle and bright man. My deepest sympathies."
I send you a big portion of strength and very big hug over the ocean. I thought about you both today. And Ulrich where ever you are now I lit a birthday candle for you
ich wünsche Dir heute ganz besonders viel Kraft und denke ganz fest an Dich! Alles Liebe, Simone"
"Dear Yvonne and everyone, I still can't believe Uli is gone. The physics was great, of course. But perhaps uniquely I came away feeling really good after every one of the many interactions I had with him. Uli was the best, Bob Brown"
"Remembering Uli on the anniversary of his birth. He is truly missed!
-Robin Erbacher, UC Davis"
"I only learned the news recently. I met Uli while I was a graduate student in Madison around 1990. Our paths have crossed many times since including here in Rochester and Buffalo, NY. My heart-felt condolences to his family. We'll all miss him."
"Dear Yvonne, I only just learned of this tragic loss. Uli was a delight to work and interact with. He will be much missed."
I only learned about this tragedy recently.Prof Baur was on my doctoral committee and I considered him both as a mentor and a friend I do not have the words to express deep sense of loss on a personal level. He was anextremely helpful and a cheerful person.
My deepest condolences to you on your loss.
"This is such sad and shocking news. I didn't find out until the Physics Today came out. Uli was a great and greatly unique physicist: a theorist with marvelous ideas who could really make them practical. He helped me so much in keeping up with particle physics while my day job kept me elsewhere, and so I learned of his wonderful personality. I'll share more with his family when I get the chance."
"Dear Yvonne, Uli was a great physicist, emphasizing the importance of precision calculation to nterpret experimental data. Uli presented his talk via video at the 2010 Topical Program at National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS) in Taiwan on Oct. 27 and Nov. 1. The NCTS LHC Physics program has benefited greatly from his participation. We will miss him. -- C.-P. Yuan (Michigan State U.)"
"It is difficult to believe that Uli is no longer with us. I write this in the language we mostly used for our conversations. He was not only a great colleague to whom I owe very much, but what is so hard to find, a true friend. He always encouraged me and gave me hope and understanding, as he took all things with a smile and good humour. Uli, I miss you..."
Please accept our sincere condolences for the sudden loss
of our friend and colleague Uli. We'll miss him dearly at the Pheno meetings and the LHC-TI discussions--Uli made such a significant contribution to these endeavors.
His friendship will be long remembered."
"Dear Yvonne and Baur family, after accompanying Uli to his final repose in the Munich Waldfriedhof let us again express our deepest sorrow for this totally unexpected loss - we share your grief with you. We lost a close friend for many decades and will miss him dearly, Karl-Heinz and Setsuko"
"Dear Yvonne, you have my deepest sympathy and condolences for this untimely loss. I knew and worked with Ulrich for more than 20 years, starting in Tallahassee. I will miss both his scientific insights and his friendly smile. All the best, John Womersley"
"Mit tiefer Anteilnahme und Trauer fühle ich mit dir und Ulrichs Familie. Ich bin froh Ulrich persönlich kennen gelernt zu haben, es war eine Bereicherung, die ich nicht missen möchte. Petra"
"Yvonne and the Baur family - you are in our thoughts and prayers this morning as you gather to remember Uli. The flowers are at his office door and the candle is lit to commemorate this morning's services. We will be with you in thought."
"Dear Yvonne, I am trully shocked to hear of Professor Baur's passing. He was a mentor and a wonderful Professor. We will definitely be missed.
"the funeral is scheduled for December 17th, 2010 and will take place in Munich, Waldfriedhof, Alter Teil at 11:30 am.
There is also a requiem and Memorial service at 9 am. It will be held in the St. Joachim Kirche, Munich, Maisinger Platz 22."
"thanks again for all your kind and heart warming words. The whole Baur family really appreciate it a lot. It shows how much he will be missed by all of you.Especially for me it is still hard to believe that he is gone.
I really miss you so much!!!"
Please accept my deepest condolence and sympathy. I knew Ulrich since 1992 when we collaborated on multiboson physics, a subject to which Ulrich contributed immensely. He was a dear friend and a colleague whose insight into physics was always helpful to many of us. I will miss him personally. Sincerely, Brajesh Choudhary."
Ulrich's untimely passing is a shock and tragedy for many of us who knew him very well. Ulrich was my de facto second thesis advisor back in 1994, when I did an experimental thesis on the work made possible by major theoretical contributions from Ulrich. I've since used his wisdom and his advice many times.
My deepest condolences on your loss - our loss...
Sincerely, Greg Landsberg"
"Dear Yvonne, missing Uli's friendly smile in the hallways of Fronczak, makes me realize which void Uli left in the department as colleague, friend and teacher. When I asked my PT if he remembered physics, he described excitedly how 15 years ago as freshman he spent time in Dr. Baur's office to learn mechanics. Uli left many great lasting memories with all of us.Please accept my sincere condolences"
"Dear Yvonne, dear Baur family, please accept my deepest sympathy. It was terrible to hear about Uli's death, and it is still hard to believe. I only knew Uli smiling, and it was always a pleasure to meet him at conferences. He was so warm-hearted, and he always had a nice word. We lost a great person and an excellent physicist."
"Dear Yvonne and Baur family, it was a shock to learn about such tragic loss. Please accept my sympathy and support in this extremely hard time. Dr. Baur was my teacher and mentor during the grad student years. He was always there to help, always with a smile. His enthusiasm was truly contagious and will be missed by us. Please remember that as long as he lives in our hearts, he still lives."
""Dear Yvonne,I am saddened by the news of Dr.Baur passing.I was a student of Dr.Baur.I will always remember him as a great teacher and a wonderful person.Please accept my condolences."
"Dear Yvonne, I didn't only view Dr. Baur as a mentor but also as a friend. His ever present smile and love for talking things through was something I always enjoyed. He was great advisor, a great teacher, and a wonderful person. We will all miss him and our thoughts and best wishes are with you."
"Dear Yvonne, I am very saddened to learn of Dr. Baur's passing. I was a student of his a many years ago and never forgot the time that he gave me in his office hours. He was a gifted teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed his class. Please accept my condolences to you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Matt Smith"

"Dear Yvonne and the Baur Family, I had the pleasure of knowing Uli for 6 years as a grad student at UB. He was a kind, fun, and energetic person, a patient teacher, and a devoted mentor. He will be greatly missed."
"He was like a light bulb coming into any room.
The whole place lit up. On our last meeting, this Spring, he greeted me with a memory of my own children from 25 years ago. How many physicists will do that! He was better than the theorists: he was a great human being."
"My deepest condolences to Uli's family for this tragic loss.
I vividly remember Uli from my time at Fermilab, where we used to talk about physics and other things and to go out for dinner in the evening. His dedication to physics, his friendly and welcoming personality, his exceptionally kind and humorous character have left a deep impression on me, which I will never forget."
"Dear Yvonne, my deepest condolences for this great loss. As it's clear from this memorial, Uli had truly many many friends! it was impossible not to be charmed by his personality, where scientific knowledge and rigor matched his candor, joy and optimism. We first met I believe back in '83 in Munich, and I have been honored by his friendship ever since. I will miss him."
My thoughts go out to you in this difficult time. Uli was not only a great physicist, but had a terrific sense of humor and a great outlook on life. I know he treasured his vacations with you. (I remember asking him to referee a paper once, and getting an email back from the vicinity of the Vermilion Cliffs...) We all will surely miss him. -Lance"
i remember Uli as a charming person and a brilliant physicist. I have written a short obituary on my particle physics blog, at http://www.science20.com/quantum_diaries_survivor .
I was deeply saddened to hear of the sudden loss of Uli. He was a treasured friend, and a wonderful colleague with his insight and support of my research in electroweak physics.

It was a thrill to meet you and Uli at our BBQ. Uli was a fine man"
"Dear Yvonne, I have no words to describe this sadness.
Uli was a very good friend and helped us immensely
when we were looking for dibosons in the Tevatron Run I data.
He was my go-to guy for theoretical questions. He will be
greatly missed. Taka Yasuda, Fermilab"
"I am stunned and saddened by this loss. I met Uli in 1987 and our careers have intertwined since, including our time together in Phenoland. In addition to his science, I will remember all the good times - the dinners, the jokes, smuggling me into France, getting pickled on my 30th birthday. He will be greatly missed and I raise a glass of Sterling Cabernet in his honor."
"Dear Yvonne, please accept my condolences. Ulrich was a brilliant colleague and friend who was always so helpful and fun to work with. Many of our early papers on diboson physics in DZero and subsequent papers on electroweak physics owe a lot to his input and expertize. He will be greatly missed.

Wir werden dich vermissen!
Fritz u. Renate Bergmann"
"Please accept my deepest condolences. Uli was such a bright and cheerful person, just seeing him or hearing his voice brought a smile to my face. He brightened everywhere he went with his kindness and his sense of humor. And the thought of facing LHC data without his penetrating intellect breaks my heart.
-- Tim Tait, UC Irvine"
I would like to send you my condolences again. Seeing Ulrich on a day to day basis, I could tell the effect that you had on him. As short as it was, too short for all of us, his life changed so much, for the better, since he met you. Thank you for having been a great part of his life. Hong"
"Uli was very special as a scientist and as a person. He was very approachable whenever he shared his deep knowledge of electroweak physics, and he was an excellent person to talk to about many other things that younger theorists need to know to stand better on their feet. He will be remembered and missed with great appreciation. With deepest sympathies, Pavel Nadolsky (SMU)"
